Log Management Questions
Sep 13 2021
Hot data is necessary for live security monitoring.
Archive data (cold data) is not available fastly. It takes days to make archive data live if the archive data time frame is more than 30 days (in most of the SIEM solutions).
As an example, SolarWinds said the attackers first compromised its development environment on Sept. 4, 2019. So, to investigate the SolarWinds case, we have to go back to Sept. 4, 2019, from now on (July 13, 2021). In this case, we need at least 18 months of live data.
The second example of why hot data is critical is from the IBM data breach report. The average time to identify and contain a breach is 280 days, according to this report.
Hot data gives defenders the quick access they need for real-time threat hunting, but hot data is more expensive than the archive option in current SIEM solutions.
Keeping data hot for SIEM use is inevitably one of the most expensive data storage options.

Hi community members,
We know it's important to conduct a trial and/or proof of concept as part of the buying process.
Do you have any advice for our community about the best way to conduct a trial or PoC? How do you conduct a trial effectively?
Are there any mistakes to avoid?(less)
